Season 2: Episode 25
We have a short week this week as there is no school this Friday and next week will be our just-in-time April vacation. Many of us are looking forward to the currently predicted beautiful weather for this week. I hope that everyone gets outside to enjoy it. I am currently staring into my yard as I write this and simultaneously counting the hours of yard clean up I have to do next week. It looks like I will be busier than I want to be!
As a reminder, our Q3 report cards will be uploaded into Aspen on 4/26 for you to view or download.
Each year the principals of the schools in the Middlesex League recognize a junior male and female with the SILS Award. The award recognizes students for Service, Integrity, Leadership and Spirit. This year, the award recipients were nominated by our faculty members. Caroline Conway and Mark Bacon were two worthy recipients of this year’s SILS award. We congratulate them and look forward to continuing to see them grow and lead by example at WHS.
Here is the link to my email and article that I shared with students last Friday.

Our WHS after school yoga classes continue to grow! The good news for anyone on the fence about trying it is that we will continue to grow the program with demand. Right now we are operating every Monday and Wednesday in room C209 right after school. See Mr. Mahoney with any questions.
Check out the upcoming fundraiser by WHS Alum Matt Mangano. Matt is looking for volunteers for Sunday April 30th to help with his Clothes4All fundraiser. Please email Matt at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested.
Canned Food Drive: Winchester Got Lunch and WHS Gives Back are teaming up this month and doing a food drive for canned ravioli / /spaghetti throughout the month of April. Winchester Got Lunch provides lunches each week to over 60 families within our community during the summer. Please drop off your donations to the box in front of the main office.
If you are a WHS student, and are interested in volunteering on Monday mornings during the summer please contact Mrs. Beauchesne at email@example.com. It is an easy and quick way to get community service hours and give back to your community.
